While the criminal penalties and financial consequences of a DUI conviction can be devastating, many convicted offenders soon realize that repercussions to their driver's license are the most difficult. Greatly limiting your mobility, license suspensions, revocations and restrictions can place tremendous strain on you and your family. In addition, driver's license penalties have the potential to negatively impact an individual's ability to commute to work, and if they drive a company vehicle, many additional complications can arise. If you are facing a driver's license suspension for a DUI or any other matter in Johnson County, Garretson & Toth, LLC can provide you with the legal assistance you need to preserve your driving privileges.
License suspensions for DUI convictions will depend on a number of factors, including whether or not you have multiple DUI convictions. Generally, license suspensions for first offenses can be as long as one year, with longer terms for subsequent offenses. If you refused to take a chemical test or if you are under the age of 21, you will receive an automatic suspension. There are also many restrictions that can apply, including the installation of an Ignition Interlock Device (IID) on your vehicle.
After an arrest for a DUI, you will be given a temporary license. In order to challenge the suspension of your license, you must request an administrative hearing within 14 days. Our legal team at Garretson & Toth, LLC is prepared to assist you during both DMV and license related issues and during criminal proceedings during the DUI process.
